When hot-shot NBA player Lebron James became a free agent in 2010, teams around the country came up with mind-blowing offers to land him. In an effort to accommodate James and his asking price, the New York Knicks let go of all but five contractually-bound players for their upcoming season.
As a result, the team found itself in need of new players who could step in at the last minute and work for cheap. So, Stephen decided to see if he fit the bill. He started by speaking to Coach Mike D'Antoni.
Stephen then "brought the rock to the rim" and set out to prove himself on the court. After checking his vertical jump in the Knicks' fitness center, he took on former Knicks player Allan Houston in a game of one-on-one. The results are documented below.
